mapball said:i could have sworn ive read about some of you guys having leaky flexpipe problems with your hotshot header. but when i called up hotshot, the lady told me i was the first shes ever heard of this problem happening to!
anyone else having this problem?
As far as I know none of the hotshot flex pipes have ACTUALLY been leaky, or have had bad welds, but are simply noisy. Am I mistaken?
Has anyone actually had exhaust leaking out of a seam or an obvious missed weld?
If not, I'll gladly put up with the noise to HP ratio when I get my Gen 4 ( Backordered, of course).
The lady I spoke to at Hotshot was cool, professional and alot more knowledgeable than most male salespeople I've had to deal with.
Any news on the new AEBS 4-1 header? Are they still available?
Both flex pipes? Are you sure your motor mounts are good?Chris93SER said:Yes, I have had exhaust leak out of a weld on the flex-pipe. A portion of the down-pipe and weld was completly black with exhaust. There was a nice gap where it leaked. It was a brand-new header and downpipe. Both flex-pipes I've had (the one that leaked, and the replacement) are very noisy. I've gotten used to it though. The performance gain is worth it, IMO.
